Without jumbo, that option does not accept a parameter, but you may nevertheless use it without a parameter, so simply use: ./john -w=mypasswd.lst -rules -stdout and if you need to revise the rules, the section in john.conf is "[List.Rules:Wordlist]". However, you will also need jumbo for the "-min-length" option that was suggested in another reply. Alexander
